WARNING! Thieves are walking around!

I saw something scary tonight... I was clicking free click exchange section on an Aurora site, and there was an ad: ************** You won $100,000 on AlertPay contest! To claim your money, enter your data below (as far as I remember, there was "bellow" instead of "below") ************** Required data were: AlertPay email address, password and pin code!!! I was so shocked that I missed to click the REPORT button but I sent a ticket to the site owner, and asked him to find the ad, to take it down, and to report the #¤"#%&¤ who set it up, to AlertPay. I hope and pray, all members of this site are smart enough to ignore it, but we can never know... there MAY be some naive newbies who DO enter their data and let the thieves in! Please, IF you ever see such a page on a site, please report it to the owner immediately. Don't let the bad guys to steal other people's hard earned money! Thank you in advance!

yeah you are right ,there are hackers sniffing around us. and if we are not aware of there activity then we could be in serious problem.so don't give personal information like email address and password to any site.because it may be hackers behind that.

Oh I saw that too. This kind of thing needs two kinds of idiot.. 1) Anyone who would complete that form is such a fool that they deserve to loose their money 2) Anyone who made that site is such a fool to forget that Alertpay has chargebacks and that Alertpay WILL return your money if your site is hacked (they will check the IPs that your account was accessed from and return your money if a 3rd party accessed your account) Idiots all around :)
